Don’t forget Quidco at 3% excluding VAT.

There’s a review HERE which suggests this is good RAM.
Why buy 4GB DDR2-800 for £55+ when you can get faster stuff with a good warranty for this price.

For you Virtual Machine heads you can get 8GB for ~£123.50 inclusive of Quidco.

CHECK COMPATIBILITY! Few machines support 1GHZ RAM!
These are 240pin DDR2 - wonderful memory if you've got a top spec computer to chuck it at :)

remember too that 32bit vista and xp will not see the whole 4gb due to legacy issues. you need to be running 64bit vista or another 64bit o/s

Thanks for the reminder, I forget sometimes that most people buy Dell & HP. Unless you have a custom built PC the chance of this running at full speed is less than 1%.

My XP Pro shows 3.5GB and when you consider that 3GB of RAM (2x1 + 2x512) usually costs more than 2x2GB and 2 sticks is usually better than 4 it still makes sense to go for a 2x2 kit.

I am not sure how big a problem the motherboard issue is but it is certainly larger than just HP & Dell etc users.

I have seen reports that the ASUS P5K series have had stability problems with some memory over 800Mhz & the review linked above suggests that Gigabyte dos not officially recognize speeds this high either.

This is really good value memory BUT, & its a big BUT, I would need convincing that if I purchased this which economical quality P35 motherboard I should buy to go with it. I would want to put it in & then find that it worked rather than have to find some slower memory to get the settings right.

Gurus please help.

I don’t think any Intel chipsets officially support DDR2-8000 although there may well be AMD chipsets that do. It’s aimed at over-clockers although you don’t need to over-clock the CPU to over-clock the memory and run it at its full speed.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive P35 board that supports DDR2-1000 then check out the reviews on the web. Gigabyte have the GA- P35-DS3L which might well hit the spot.

It may be worth posting this question on the OcUK forums where there is a very knowledgeable community on such things.
